The conference

Narrative environments for the construction of immersive experiences

During this conference, Yan will present a series of immersive visualisation projects in multi-screen, Full Dome and virtual reality format. It will thus be about visualising computer files (VjGraph, 2013), complex phenomena (Nuée/Swarm, 2015, Re-Génération, 2015) and sound and music (Enigma, 2017 and Les Planètes, 2018). The immersion paradigm literally transforms the status of  images; they crossover from representation to environment. Spectators are placed in the centre of permanently mutating virtual spaces. This aspect transforms the enjoyment of works into experiences. Does the domain of immersive visualisation constitute a new narrative form? How can we transmit complex concepts by combining sensory dimensions and immersion narratives? How can we make sound, a musical composition, complex phenomenon or mass of data visible in an immersive form?
